I often see grumbles from readers in the Blather about beauty counter staff in department stores. Some of you are utterly put off by snooty attitudes, unhelpful advice and being ignored in favour of a chat with another staff member. But others take not a bit of notice of any sales assistant carry-on and assert themselves to get the service they want.
What I want to know is, are beauty counter staff really rude and horrid, or is there just a perception among customers that this is the case? And which side of the argument are you on?
Lets have a poll to determine attitudes with regard to this vital issue! And in the comments, rate your favourite counters, and tell us which ones have the absolute worst staff, and most importantly, why.
